The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is one of Brooklyn's most beloved destinations. Calmer than Coney and less brassy than the Bridge, it's a remarkable oasis in New York's famously demanding urban jungle. Spend an hour here for the psychic equivalent of a good massage, a great yoga class, or a walk on the beach. It's also a place where children romp, lovers kiss, and old-timers sit and reminisce with friends.

Brooklyn magic.
